About Danny Maynard

I live in Davenport, FL with my husband, Bert. We were married on May 29, 2010 in Washington, DC, just as soon as we could, after they passed their marriage equality laws and they were verified as constitutional by the courts. After 35 years, it was a wonderful event. We had both friends and family there.

We live in the shadow of Walt Disney World, just 15 miles away. It is a wonderful place to visit and have fun. We have been going there since 1991, and still have not done it all. An annual pass lets me go there every day if I choose, but I still could not do it all, and it keeps changing too.

I have a Bachelor of Art degree with major in Mathematics and minor in Physics. I did work on a masters, but frankly, being a mathematician as a career was not for me. I found out later that I should have done computer programming, and so I did. I received a degree in Computer Programming and Operations. I spent over 30 years writing programs and building databases of technical documentation and graphics for major companies throughout the United States. It was a wonderful career.

My hobby has always been art, and I used to do traditional art until the early 1990's. I particularly like oil painting, but I found out that oil paints and its liquid mediums are poisonous to the human body, being made out of dangerous heavy metals and volatile hydrocarbons. When in the 1980's I found out I could combine art and computer, and I was in heaven. Digital art has so many advantages over traditional media work.

My 'dream machine' came into being in 2009, when Intel created the i7-920 CPU, and Dell put a dual-screen computer together for me where I can play music and videos while I create 'deviations' and search the Internet, all at the same time. I bought a cheap video webcam so I can chat with my family elsewhere in the USA and the world.

I love being retired after over 40 years working. I can now do what I have always wanted to do, and do it digitally with abandon.

Thanx for stopping by to visit my devious creations! Have a great life, and don't let anyone tell you you do not have talent -- just persevere and practice till you are an artist, one way or another.

Art is designed to evoke an emotion, so make 'em laugh, or scream, or love, or hate, or even think ... but get a rise from your audience. Even bad art is good art. Make art from art. Just be the artist you want to be. No one , and I mean absolutely no one, can say otherwise to you. Your work is your creation ... so create!
